OK folks I need some opinions and help. I have finally got enough to buy a full sized headphone and I'm having a hard time deciding between two. The Grado sr60is or the Koss Pro DJ100. I am also purchasing a fiio e07k and koss sportapro at the same time (mostly for a headband to use with my KSC75s but also to have the deeper, bassier sound of the sportapro drivers)
The koss- pros- Closed back, solid build, comfortable
cons- long burn in, needs amp to sound best
the grados- pros- cool looking (to me), great for rock
cons- little bit more expensive, open back (not that big of a con)
So for reference I listen to a lot of indie rock, pink floyd, some metal, electro house, choral music.
I am looking for a full sized headphone to use mostly at home. I currently have Koss KSC75s and the AKG K430.
My problem is I can't decide which of the two I want! I have done a fair amount of research on both of them on here and apparently they are fairly close in sound? and also are the Grados that much better sounding than the KSC75s? I have heard that they are also similar sounding. It is probably fairly obvious that I am pretty new to the hobby and I really appreciate the help!
Edit: and just so ya know, I use an Ipod Classic and my laptop as primary sources
